Getting Warmer — or Not?
Students fill out a survey that simulates the college application process. The survey calculates a score that represents a student’s readiness for college. Feedback from the survey helps motivate the participant to ‘fill in the blanks’ of his or her accomplishments while there is still time to achieve the kinds and levels of performance colleges demand.
This activity targets sophomores, since they still have two years left — maybe more — to improve their academic and social performance before they need to apply to a college for real. Students can access this tool multiple times during sophomore year to see how close they come to being accepted into a post-secondary institution and help ensure they meet the goals they have for their futures.
